Knockout City, EA’s wacky multiplayer dodgeball game, ranks among 2021’s most pleasant surprises. The game is a riot and will join November’s batch of PlayStation Plus games after already appearing on Xbox Game Pass. If you’ve enjoyed lobbing exploding balls into the faces of friends or strangers on PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X/S, your matches are about to look and feel even better.
On November 2, new-gen enhancements will hit the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions of Knockout City free of charge. Players who obtained the game through Game Pass or PS Plus are eligible for the upgrade as well. What are you getting? Here’s the full breakdown below:
- PlayStation 5: Native 4K at 60FPS or 1440p (upscaled to 4K) at 120FPS
- Xbox Series X: Native 4K at 60FPS or 1620p (upscaled to 4K) at 120FPS
- Xbox Series S: 1440p at 60FPS or 1080p at 120FPS
Options for Performance and Quality modes will appear in the main menu. Developer Velen Studios has also improved Knockout City’s overall lighting and added effects such as ball lights. High-fidelity textures arrive across the board after only being present in the Series X and PC versions of the game, too. You can read more about the enhancements at the Knockout City website.
